I have had my CX2 for about 4 years now and have been bored with it for 3 1/2 of it. I have wanted a CP heli for a long time. I know I know get a FP. but I don't want an FP to get bored with in six months. I want some thing that is going to challenge me.
Here is the deal I can't decide if I want to get the blade SR or the blade cp. They are both similar but just as different.
I like the BCP because it's been out forever and has good aftermarket for when (if) I get good at it. I like the BSR because of the DSM radio and the whole "beginner help" built into the radio.
The thing I don't like about the BSR is having to upgrade the radio when I get proficient at flying

I just want a good CP that doesn't need a lot of modifying right out of the box to be a good heli. Oh I would say the BCP Pro but it's a bit out of my range for now.

Try a blade 400, there are usually a lot of them for sale. I sold min to aquire a beam. lot of diference there boy. The blade has parts readily available, but a hihg end 450 is sooooo much easier to fly. Good luck.

I have heard that the 400 is good but it is larger than I want. I don't have alot of places to go to fly something like that. I wanted to stay with a smaller heli, even if they are harder to learn on.

The blade is approx 24 " across the head. you also get the benefitof a belt drive tail. pretty sturdy little bird, mainshaft is soft, but they are cheap too. I think it was like 2 for 5 bucks. and I would rather replace a mainshaft than all the other crap that would bend or break if it didnt. I flew mine in the back yard and its pretty small.

Eflight says the 400 has a rotor lenght of 28", that is to big for what I want. It also costs over twice what the others cost. I'm not being cheap I'm just not going to spend that much on something I don't have the room to use. I'm not going to drive 30 min and pay $7 every time I want to fly (or just crash.I don't have the time or opportunity to fly outside all the time. If I could I would definitely get the 400. but not now. for now I just want to get something I can use.

No one here has any more info for me? I have read that the CP has tail problems. Is that true? Is that a big problem for a beginner?

I'd recommend to stay away from motor driven tail. As well as from BCP or it's successors. You'll get only frustrations, extremely having it as first CP heli.

Among small helis are:
- Trex 250
- Gaui 200
- Gaui 255
- Rico LaHeli
- Honey Bee King 3

all of above have pluses and minuses and different price.
